Pina, Jeremiah; Mazur, Rebecca; Ellis, Glenn; Rudnitsky, Al; McGinnis-Cavanaugh, Beth; Ellis, Sonia; Huff, Isabel; Ford, Crystal – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
This paper describes the development of two versions of an NGSS-aligned principles of engineering design unit for use in middle schools. By employing a narrative framework that can help students to connect more deeply with the human contexts and consequences of the engineering design process, our goal was to enhance students' cognitive and…

Cunningham, Christine M.; Kelly, Gregory J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
In this paper, we address the societally important issue of developing a more equitable approach to preK-12 engineering education. Our primary emphasis is on K-8 grades--a time when first impressions of engineering may be developed. Calls for increased participation by all students, including those who have been historically marginalized, motivate…

Simpson, Amber; Knox, Peter N. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
The culture of engineering and the culture of formal learning environments often make it difficult for individuals to develop an engineering identity. Conversely, recent research points to the home environment as an alternative setting to support discipline-specific identity development of children, while less is known regarding the identity…

Snodgrass Rangel, Virginia; Henderson, Jerrod A.; Martinez, Chelsea; Greer, Rick – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
The COVID-19 pandemic forced much of schooling online and limited students' access to informal learning opportunities such as afterschool programs. The purpose of this study was to investigate how fourth- and fifth-grade students engaged in an online engineering program and what factors influenced their engagement. We drew on a four-dimensional…

Jackson, Justina R.; Boice, Katherine L.; Cochran, Stephen; Skelton, Brooke; Rosen, Jeffrey; Usselman, Marion – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
This study investigated the teaching experiences of three school personnel at a public high school during the 2020-2021 school year as they implemented a unique science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) unit with in-person and virtual students in their engineering classes during the COVID-19 pandemic. A research team interviewed two…

Delen, Ibrahim; Yuksel, Tugba – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
In the past hundred years, there have been a number of pandemics that have affected the entire world, including the 1918 H1N1 influenza pandemic, the 1957 H2N2 influenza pandemic, and the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. While responses to the most recent H1N1 influenza pandemic remained local, the COVID-19 pandemic, on the other hand, resulted in…

Kidd, Jennifer; Kaipa, Krishnanand; Gutierrez, Kristie; Lee, Min Jung; Pazos, Pilar; Ringleb, Stacie I. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
Ed+gineering, an NSF-funded program, adapted hands-on robotics instruction for online delivery in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This qualitative multiple case study shares the experiences of participating education students in spring 2021 as they collaborated virtually with engineering students and fifth graders to engineer bioinspired robots…

Skinner, Ron K.; Harlow, Danielle B. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
The practice of persisting and learning from design failures is essential to engineering design and offers unique ways of knowing and learning for K-12 students. To understand how students engage in the practice of persisting and learning from design failures, we must first understand how, if at all, they recognize that a design failure has…

Lane, Tonisha B.; Vomvoridi-Ivanovic, Eugenia; Cain, Leia K.; Willis, Selene; Ahmad, Salam; Gaines, Jonathan – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
The societal disruptions due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic are well noted, especially in the context of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Absent a concerted effort to sustain hands-on learning opportunities in STEM amid the crisis, the consequences of COVID-19 may exacerbate existing inequities and…

Clark, Abigail M.; Kajfez, Rachel – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
Despite years of recruitment efforts, women remain significantly underrepresented throughout engineering. While research into precollege engineering education has expanded, it has primarily focused on formal learning settings, even though students spend significantly more time outside of the classroom. The COVID-19 pandemic changed everything,…

Manuel, Mariam; Gottlieb, Jessica; Svarovsky, Gina; Hite, Rebecca – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
The instructional practices of the engineering design process and culturally responsive pedagogy have each garnered national attention and multiple decades of research. Findings from the respective literature bases call for educators and policymakers to integrate these two pedagogical approaches into K-12 classroom instruction. Scholars have…

Henderson, Jerrod; Snodgrass Rangel, Virginia; Holly, James, Jr.; Greer, Rick; Manuel, Mariam – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Black and Brown men continue to be underrepresented in engineering. One explanation for the dearth of Black and Latino men in engineering is that engineering (and STEM) identity often is not inclusive of People of Color. As a result, Black and Brown boys may be less likely to become interested in STEM subjects. The purpose of this study, then, was…

Goldstein, Molly H.; Adams, Robin S.; Purzer, Senay – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Trade-off decisions, which necessitate striking a balance between two or more desirable but competing features, are a crucial part of design practice. However, they are known to be difficult for student designers to make. While designers, educators, and researchers have numerous methods to assess the quality of design artifacts, these methods are…

Chiu, Jennifer L.; Fick, Sarah J.; McElhaney, Kevin W.; Alozie, Nonye; Fujii, Reina – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
This paper addresses an important consideration for promoting equitable engineering instruction: understanding how teachers contextualize curricular materials to draw upon student and community resources. We present a descriptive case study of two 5th grade teachers who co-designed a Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)-aligned curricular unit…

Spruill, Nyissia Charmaine; Hennessy Elliott, Colin; Della Volpe, Daniela; Alcantara, Keidy – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
This paper examines video data of a high school robotics team to explore practices that empower youth from underrepresented groups in engineering to disrupt traditional boundaries around what engineering is and who is considered competent to participate in its practice. We analyze in-the-moment positioning work with a focus on care and maintenance…
